« on: October 21, 2009, 07:19:11 AM »
Has anyone seen or thrown the new "Wild Card" yet? If so, what can you tell us about it.

Thanks,
KB

I haven't received the staff balls yet, but I did throw it while it was still a test ball. Very smooth predictable roll out of the box, a different motion than the Siege.

I threw it at a Brunswick/Morich seminar.Compared to the wild thing it reads the midlane more and smoother on the back with more overall hook.

I just threw mine for the first time tonight. 4.5" pin below fingers no hole, 4000 abralon. Initial impression is I have a new favorite solid symmetrical from Brunswick! I can now retire the Ultimate Inferno. I'll throw it some more and post a review when the link is available.

I threw mine in a second-shift league on Tuesday.  It's drilled with the pin 5" from my PAP, above the fingers, and I left it in box finish.  For a strong solid, it was remarkably clean in front, with a defined move at the break that reminded me a lot of the Inferno series.

Compared with my polished Wild Thing drilled 5" under, the Wild Card started up slightly quicker, but was sharper at the turn, and was roughly two-and-one stronger overall.

I'll know more after throwing it at a different center tomorrow night.

I've only thrown mine once on a fresh pattern. I liked it very much. Great recovery for a solid!

I need to use it a few more times on different conditions before I post a full review, too. I will try my Diamondback tomorrow.
